So Kiss me and Smile for Me

Farewell to Schmitty!
My cat. I never loved her. I don't know why.
So I'm sending her down the river. East of Eden.
To Chicago. She's taking the red eye tonight to the Midwest, poor thing, she's never known winter, or hunger, or sorrow, let's face it, she doesn't know much, she's a cat and we all know that cats, like certain beautiful men and women, only have an air of wisdom because they are so damned pretty, and for some reason we dumbo humans conflate beauty and truth (thanks a lot Keats) and project the depths of the cosmos onto anything that's green-eyed and symmetrical. So Schmitty, wart and all (see her wart?) only looks like she has a soul. She doesn't. She's a cat.

Me and Schmitty, we tolerated each other, but it was a marriage of convenience. We both knew it. She will be happier with my friend in Chicago. We're both mysoginists, and I'm a dog person anyway.
Good bye, Schmitty, I hardly knew ye!

Schmitty! I hope she's having a good flight.

I like the b/w pics too.

Schmitty doesn't leave until 11:50 pm tonight.
I hope she's ok.
FLying sucks, and cats weren't meant to fly. They should slink.
I feel nervous; I have visions of a cat carrier showing up at OHare with a dead cat in it...
She'll be fine, right?

Call the vet and get her a tranquilizer for the flight.

The vet said that tranquilizing animals is MEDIEVAL and they aren't supposed to be drugged anymore.
Too many animals died in flight or something.
I may get her high on catnip, though.

Call the vet and get me a tranquilizer then.

Me and Todd flew my cat Tia out to the bush when we got jobs there, she was really pissed off about the flight kennel at first, but she got back to normal pretty quickly.

I ship live cats all the time. I wish I'd read this, I could have given you some advice.

Paul, you ship live cats?
I swing dead ones. Haha.
I wish.

So what do you do? Are you the owner of a kitty mill?
